The Bold and the Beautiful's Jennifer Finnigan (ex-Bridget Forrester) has been cast as the lead in CBS' summer series Salvation.

Congratulations are in order for The Bold and the Beautiful alum Jennifer Finnigan (ex-Bridget Forrester). The Canadian actress has been cast as the lead in CBS' upcoming straight-to-series summer suspense thriller Salvation.

Written by Necessary Roughness creators and executive producers Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro and based on a story by Matt Wheeler, Salvation centers on low-level Pentagon official and single mom Grace (Finnigan) after MIT grad student Liam and tech superstar Darius inform her that they've just discovered an asteroid that is six months away from colliding with Earth. Grace's life is set spinning when she's brought into the government's secret task to save humanity and isn't allowed to tell her family and loved ones the horror the world is facing.

Finnigan starred on B&B from 2000 to 2004. She has also appeared in shows like Student Bodies, Crossing Jordan, Committed, Close to Home, The Dead Zone, Monday Mornings, and Tyrant.

Salvation is set to debut on July 12 alongside returning drama Zoo, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This article was updated to include the premiere date, which had previously not been determined.
